Originally a coaching inn, the AA 4-star Royal Oak – Ripon is full of charm, blending innovative culinary creations with traditional British classics. The cosy courtyard is perfect for al fresco drinking and dining.

All of the steaks are sourced from Wateredge Farm in Ripon, and are matured for 30 days. Other Royal Oak restaurant creations include roast monkfish with crispy oxtail and wild mushrooms, Whitby crab cake with wild sorrel mayonnaise or handmade butternut squash tortellini with Amaretti crumbs.

Innovative desserts include chocolate truffle with lime jelly, sea salt and smoked almonds or sticky toffee pudding with torched bananas and peanut butter ice cream. A classy wine list accompanies a premium draught range of hand pulled ales.

In the heart of historic Ripon, Royal Oak is just a 2-minute walk from Ripon Cathedral.

    We have dined here several times and the service is always friendly and the food excellent. [...]travelled from Darlington and enjoyed a tasty Sunday lunch. It is definitely worth an hours drive!

    Seated at 1830 our experience was great from start to finish; great environment, wide menu choice, friendly professional service, quirky items (chips in basket!), not hurried and top notch toilets.

    Dined early evening. Original table was near a party group. Moved to A quieter table without having to ask. Food freshly cooked. Very enjoyable. Asked about a certain ingredient and staff found out from kitchen

  • ((((* by from Harrogate

    We enjoyed an absolutely perfect meal-we arrived after a pleasant walk at Studley royal. The four of us all had different meals, one of us being vegetarian, and all our choices tasted gorgeous. The food was beautifully set out. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We were all commenting on how lovely it was when Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven came on pleasantly in the background to make our day
